The Fogelman College of Business and Economics of The University of Memphis, in collaboration with the College of Pharmacy of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, announces the offering of an MBA Degree with a Pharmacy Practice Management Concentration.  This 45-credit-hour program is designed for current and future pharmacists who face the challenge of leading and managing large pharmacy operations, such as those in hospitals and community pharmacies, as a business enterprise.  The program can be taken on a part-time or full-time basis, with classes offered in the evenings and online.

Of the 45-credit hours, 30 consist of standard MBA core courses in accounting, economics, finance, management, management information systems, and marketing, taken at The University of Memphis.  Fifteen credit hours are targeted pharmacy practice management courses taken at The University of Memphis or at the UT Health Science Center, depending on the course.  These include required and elective courses chosen from among Healthcare Economics, Seminar in Human Resource Management, Self-Leadership for Executives, Pharmacoeconomics, Health Informatics and E-Health, and Strategies for Health Policy Formulation and Planning.  Included in the 15-credit-hour concentration is a required, 3-credit-hour internship or practicum in which the student will put the material being taught into practice in a pharmacy work environment.

Dr. Rajiv Grover, Dean of the University of Memphis' Fogelman College of Business and Economics, comments, "The joint Pharm-D /MBA program is yet another example of the Customer-Driven philosophy adopted by the Fogelman College of Business and Economics. We will be training and producing students that are demanded by our customers – in this case, organizations with businesses pertaining to operating pharmacies."
